Columbia River Maritime Museum

Anyone who loves ships and the sea will also love this impressive museum. Learn about the treacherous convergence of river and ocean at the Columbia River Bar, scene of many shipwrecks, where waves can top 12 meters (40 feet) during winter storms. Additionally, you can explore the heroic endeavors of the U.S. Coast Guard and Columbia River Bar pilots, find out about the area’s legendary salmon runs and take a tour of a "floating lighthouse," the 1951 lightship Columbia.
